download (100)


With summer holidays seemingly coming up fast, it’s never been a better time to start thinking about the best places to take the kids this year for your break away from it all as a family. While it’s tempting to jet set away from the UK and explore the European mainland, unfortunately the unsurety of Brexit has kind of put a damper on that and many more Brits are looking at staying home this summer due to uncertainty about how travelling to Europe may change. If this sounds like you, but you aren’t sure where in the UK to explore, here are some top suggestions to make this summer the best yet.


Wiltshire is one of the most beautiful counties in the UK and is a hit with people of all ages as well as singletons, couples and families. With so many unique things to see and do throughout the county, it’s always been a popular spot. Explore the ‘White Horses of Wiltshire’, large chalk horses drawn in hillsides in the likes of Westbury, Alton Barnes and Pewsey or stroll the picturesque National Trust village of Lacock. Visit Salisbury to see the highest spire in the UK on the cathedral and have a meal at the bar that used to house the workmen for the cathedral, dating back to 1220, the Haunch of Venison.


Probably one of the most beautiful regions in the whole of the UK, it’s no surprise that so many families flock to Snowdonia to enjoy the natural surroundings. Swim in wild lakes, climb Mount Snowdon or just explore the villages and towns that make this National Park their home. Learn the tragic story of Gelert, faithful hound to Prince Llewellyn in Beddgelert and see if you can find the Watkin Path waterfalls – apparently the locals’ best kept secret!


If you love the coast, Cornwall is the place for you. With miles and miles of rugged, gorgeous Atlantic coastline, you’re in for a treat just about anywhere you step foot in throughout the county. Stay at Perran Springs Camping and Holiday Park for truly the best base to explore the whole of Cornwall:

Located not far from Falmouth, and only an hour’s drive away from most major sites, it’s the perfect central location for any Cornish family getaway.

So if you’ve been wondering which counties you should consider for a family getaway this summer, hopefully these suggestions have given you a good starting place. Good luck, and enjoy!
